Santiago Medina is a Colombian-American contemporary sculptor and a pioneer in the use of advanced medical imaging technology in sculpting. His distinctive use of technologies such as Computerized Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) allows him to scan his works, subsequently enhancing their volumetric appeal and sculptural form. Medina brings powerful artistic expression, technological sophistication, and physician sensitivity, which results in vibrant masterpieces that will transcend generations. He works with the highest quality Italian stainless steel available and imported from Milan, also occasionally creating steel-and-epoxy sculptures, as well as bronze pieces.
